Rivets, Chicago Screws & Snaps

Two Part hit-to-gether jiffy rivets

Rivets

Rivets are the most common and economical fastener used in BDSM leather working. Although brass rivets are more expensive, we've chosen to stock them over steel. Not only are brass rivets impervious to rust, the softer metal is easier to work with, without a meaningful loss of strength.

Chicago Screw Post

Chicago Screws(Screw post, Keyposts, Binder post)

Chicago screws consist of a screw and a post. The post is a base and threaded tube, and the screw threads into the tube to complete a fastening. Chicago screws are very strong, and ideal for loaded or underdesigned points.
These are brass Chicago screws, and again impervious to rust. We offer three sizes, each in a nickel or black finish. Sold individually, with a price break at 12.

4 Part Snaps or Durable Snaps

Snaps

Snaps make a compact and effective closure, and the Ligne 20 (smaller) size is ideal for BDSM purposes. We also offer the Ligne 24 (larger) snaps.

A single snap has two sides... male, on the bottom piece of leather, and female, on the top. Each side has two pieces The male side consists of an eyelet and a stud. The female side is made from a button and a socket. These snaps require snap setters which are available in the Tools section.

One of the issues BDSM makers face is the uneven use of male and female components. An adjustable closure usually has one female side attaching to several male sides, although some folks make them the other way around. Buying full snap sets therefore means you end up with some components left over. Very wasteful! WWL Hardware sells individual parts in addition to full sets so you won't have that problem.

These snaps are made from brass for rust resistance, and sold in packs of 10. Available in nickel or black finishes. Black components are a dull black oxide finish.
